Our  Values

The organisation and network will be guided and informed by commitment to the following values:

  • Inclusiveness – We welcome and respect people from all backgrounds, place the highest value on diversity and are committed to equality.
  • Openness - We are committed to a culture of working collaboratively within the network and in partnership with others.
  • Participation – Those who support our vision work together with people seeking sanctuary. We value and recognise the contribution of all involved. We aspire to ensure people seeking sanctuary are fully involved in decision making processes and supported to become leaders within the Places of Sanctuary  Ireland organisation and network as well as within the wider movement.
  • Inspiring – We work with enthusiasm and positivity and are determined to surpass what has already been achieved to welcome refugees and people seeking sanctuary. We act as a catalyst for change by being open to new and innovative ideas and through sharing knowledge gained with others and working in partnership.
  • Integrity – We aspire to high standards of honesty and behaviour, and always to act in the interest of people seeking sanctuary.
